as we forgive those

Dear Lord, I am praying to you to help me in preparing for our wedding. My husband and I are having problems in our finances and I worry that I may not plan and budget our wedding well. My husband does not approve of all my suggestions and I'm having a hard time looking for possible cheap suppliers.
I really don't know what to do now. I always tell him that if he's not ready to shell out some money for our wedding, it's just fine with me. We might as well cancel our wedding plans. But he would always say that he wants to push through with it. I am not longing for a grand wedding. I just want a simple and memorable one but getting married here is really costly. We've been together for 15years and I even never thought that he'll have plans of marrying me.
Though it will be my privilege to receive our Lord's blessing in the sacrament of marriage. Please help me Lord. Please bring to me to people who are going to be a big help for this wedding. If this will push through, I hope everything will turn out fine and beautiful. I leave it all up to you my Lord.
Please bless and enlighten my husband on this preparation. Thank you.
We praise you for your love and faithfulness. We thank you for huge grace. We thank you that you give us the power to love well. Thank you for my spouse. Thank you for the gift of marriage. Thank you that you're for us; that you fight for us. Thank you that you are Redeemer, and you have good in store. We confess, some days, marriage gets tough, and we blow it again. We ask that you would make us more like you. Please fill our marriage and lives with truth and cover it with blessing.

In Jesus' name,
Heavenly Father we come before you to thank you for all you have done and continue to do in our lives and marriage. We come before you today, God, asking for a stronger bond of unity in our marriage covenant.
Father we ask that you will give us the ability to be a united front for you letting nothing come between us.
Help us, Father to identify and work through anything that is not pleasing to you so we can continually reach higher levels of unity in our marriage spiritually, physically, and mentally.
We are thankful and excited to see the work of your hand as we do our best to seek your face daily. We love you and thank you for all of these things.
Father, your greatest command was to love You and love each other. You've given marriage as a holy relationship that reflects our relationship with You. Show us how to follow your example and set aside our selfishness and pride and humbly serve each other. Help us to be of one spirit and of one mind and value each other above ourselves, looking out for each other's interests. In the midst of our busy lives, help us take time to love each other deeply from the heart, as you have loved us. May the love we have for each other be an example to the world of how You love them and gave Your life for them.
Lord, I pray for your peace to rule richly in my marriage and in my home. You said in your Word that the peace you give passes all understanding. I receive that peace right now. I choose to let the peace of Christ rest in my heart. As the peace of Christ rest in my heart, it will extend to my marriage.
